Construction, Architects, Solicitors, Banking and other Professional Services have demanding requirements for sharing large volumes of data in a secure and optimised manner. The data may be transferred between offices, operatives on location or to a Cloud service.
Sufficient bandwidth, and optimal use of the network capacity has a direct impact on the efficiency of their workflows. Often local services such as ADSL are the limiting factor and provisioning faster services may not be possible. Optimising the use of the existing link can improve the situation dramatically. The ability to readily augment this bandwidth with cellular or even another ADSL link is a cost effective solution.
Simple load balancing technology can help with “overall load” from the office, but does not make any specific data transfer faster as it cannot aggregate the available bandwidth. However, Hybrid WAN and WAN Optimisation technology can offer a highly cost effective and extensible solution, while also securing the link.
Livewire Digital has developed a unique and comprehensive approach to Wide Area Networks called RazorLink Smart Networking. RazorLink is a Software Defined Networking (SDN) solution that offers WAN Optimisation across a wide variety of physical networks including cellular, satellite and international links. RazorLink can combine services offering a true Hybrid WAN for additional bandwidth or failover. Similarly, by encrypting the data RazorLink secures the link regardless of which route the traffic takes.
RazorLink is a software solution that can be installed on a Mac or PC, deployed like a router (physical or virtual), or embedded alongside system firmware. The counterpart can be run on dedicated hardware or virtualised on Private or Public Cloud services.
